Hannah Cullwick

Pleasures Taken: Performances of Sexuality and Loss in Victorian Photographs
by Carol Mavor
Publisher's Description
The three photographers Lewis Carroll, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Hannah Cullwick made some of the most compelling and often misunderstood photographs of the Victorian era. Carroll's young girls, Cameron's Madonnas, and Cullwick's self-portraits are the subjects of Mavor's insightful and lucid text. Her thoughtful and original analyses of the images reveal a sexuality she feels is worthy of recognition, respect, and scrutiny. A fascinating look at this unique period in photography.
